Beware of this product...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sunydeal Laptop AC Adapter Power Supply Charger for Dell inspiron PA-12 PA-2E 6400 6000 1000 1400 1501 1525 1520 15R N5010 M5040 (Accessory)
A lot of the reviews for this product are alarming and it may be prudent to take note of them. My experience is that there is certainly an incompatibility with newer dell models which use a power lead of a different design and which have a 1.6A input, as opposed to the 1.5A of this product and older versions of Dell's power lead. That said, the old 1.5A power lead I have, works fine with the newer laptop....?
Have not used this product for long enough to assess its safety or reliability, but it actually looks fine, but there are grammatical errors on the transformer which does not bode well - see 1 star reviews. What I can say is that it my Inspiron N5040 does not like this device - however, I now realise that the product description on Amazon actually states M5040 [unclear what difference this makes] - but "seems" to work fine with an older Inspiron 1150. Also, when I received this product, I realised that it had a 13 Amp fuse in the plug - this should be a 5 Amp! When I replaced this fuse, one of the end caps came away! I have never known a fuse disintegrate like this...It was of very poor quality and doesn't inspire confidence. My advice is to use a 3 Amp fuse with this device, just in case.
